Have two of them.  One is a Remington with synthetic stock.  I have this addiction to heavy calibers and was anxious to try it.  It weighed around seven pounds and hurt when fired.  Five or six rounds were about it.  I put a mercury recoil reducer in the stock, in a walnut plug cut to fit and glassed in.  It added 2 pounds and the recoil is manageable.  The light weight would be a plus for carrying but not shooting.

Then I saw a model 70 in 375 H&H. Out of the box it is far more fun.

Lock, Stock and Barrel had surplus 300 gr FMJ bullets on sale and I ended up with 600 of them so I haven't bothered to work up cast loads.

Enjoy!
